Gabriel Bay would make a good starter home
The Gabriel Bay (D8013) is a compact home, ideal for the young couple just starting out. It has 1,392 square feet of open living area. The outside has a brick and wood facade, a covered porch with two pillars, and a decorative window. This home, being only 42 feet wide would be ideal for any of the smaller lots that have become available for building.
Once in the entry, the Gabriel Bay is open to the Great Room. A large fireplace is on the rear wall of the Great Room, ideal for heat and for the aesthetic look. There are windows on each side, bathing the room with light and a feel of spaciousness.
On the left side of the Great Room through an archway is the kitchen and nook. The nook has a large window seat across the back wall and a door that opens to the backyard. The kitchen has been designed with a large amount of counterspace. There is an eating bar, dual sinks, a pantry, and walk-in storage closet. On the opposite side from the pantry is the utility room, tucked back between the kitchen and the garage.
For convenience, a door to the two-car garage has been added at the end of the kitchen. This helps with unloading groceries, getting kids in from the car, or coming in from working outside and leaving the dirty clothes in the utility room. The garage is oversized and has an area that could be used as storage or as a workbench.
The bedrooms are located n the right side of the Gabriel Bay. The master suite is in the rear, with a large walk-in closet and a full bath. Extras have been put into the master bath such as an oversized corner tub, a shower, and 'his-and-her' sinks. For convenience, the linen closet is just outside the main suite door.
Bedrooms two and three have a full bath with a tub between them. Each room has a wall closet behind folding doors and large windows for extra light. There is also a linen closet for these rooms. The stairs to the unfinished optional basement is located between the master suite and bedroom three. If a basement is not needed, this area would become part of the Great Room.
Overall, the Gabriel Bay has great potential for the new homeowner. It is not small, nor is it too large. It would fit nicely on several of the lots that are available, and would be a pleasant environment.
